January POTM

We love bringing you guys our Polish Of The Month posts. It's always so much fun showcasing a special polish or polishes (because sometimes two is better than one) every single month. There are just so many awesome polishes out there that they really do deserve their own post! So without further adieu, we bring you...

January Polish Of The Month

Jayme's Pick - Illamasqua Viridian
While this color is technically referred to as a peacock green with a metallic finish, I think it fits right into the "emerald" category which is awesome since emerald is the color of the year. I have to be honest and tell you that Mendi pointed that out. I just loved this color because it was a little "holiday-ish" and I had never used it. It needed love and now I'm in love. Great formula and I could have only used one coat. Love this!!

Mendi's Pick - Essie Magnetic Snakeskin in Crocadilly
We absolutely didn't plan to both pick a shade of green for our POTM picks this month, but sometimes these things happen and we just roll with it! I picked up three of the six shades of the new Essie Magnetic Snakeskin Collection recently and I couldn't get this green one on my nails soon enough. Magnetic polishes can be a little tricky since you have to hover the magnet precariously close to WET polish in order to achieve the effect. I'll admit that not every nail came out perfect, but I really like the looks of it. You're guaranteed to never get the same manicure twice with one of these.

OK, now that we've shared, it's your turn. What polish has been gracing your nails this month? Now that the holidays are over, we look for little things, like nail polish, to brighten not only our nails but also these dreary and rainy winter days we've been having. 


  1. So gorgeous! :)


  2. I haven't seen much of this deep green shade so its something quite new and refreshing to me, I prefer the first lovely one!

  3. Ooh, I'm going to have to get this color! Pretty. :)
    I'm into brown based/purplely colors.


  4. I love both colours!
    I think darker colours are so pretty during the winter season :)

  5. great colors!! i need new color i have been bare for a while:/


  6. So pretty, do you put a gel top coat to keep them from chipping?

  7. love them both. right now my nails are naked but I did try the impress on nails in so so steller

  8. Both are very pretty But I really LOVE the way Essie one.
    Thanks for sharing have a great weekend.

  9. Great post! I love it! ^^ You have a nice blog, mind to follow each other? :)


  10. Love the Essie magnetic nail polish!

  11. That magnetic polish is SO cool!! I haven't seen it on anyone's nails before and it looks fabulous. May have to run out today and pick some up...

  12. Great polishes! I have just started trying to get into the habit of regularly painting my nails. To make myself more motivated I recently joined Julep. I love the nail polished I have received from there so far.

    I hope you are enjoying your weekend.

  13. Great polish picks! I love that magnetic polish, really pretty!
    I've been loving some of OPI's Mariah Carey shades lately :)

  14. Pretty colors!

    How did the magnetic polish hold up? I tried the Sally Hansen version and LOVED the look but within minutes they started chipping.

  15. I like the ESSIE ~ it's a show stopper, WOW! I can't wear the dark polish when I work. If I do wear anything it's the ESSIE Ballet Slippers. We really shouldn't wear polish in my line of business.. but I usually wear latex gloves so no one can see:)

    Enjoy your week!


  16. Oooo I tried magentic polish for the first time this week!
